Getting to Geirangerfjord

Day 2

Goal today is to reach Geiranger.

Route E39 between Klakegg and Byrkjelo

Made a visit to Briksdalsbreen to checkout what’s left of the glacier.

The drive in to Briksdalsbreen

It was after our hike that we realised we had made a big mistake. We were planning on driving to Geiranger but the roads were still closed due to snow! Out of panic I called our accommodation and the lady advised we try catch the ferry at Hellesylt.

So I drove as safely and quick as I could… We got to Hellesylt with about 20 minutes to spare before the last ferry departs. It’s days like these that you realise maybe god is watching out for you.

The Hellysyltfossen waterfall was very calming after that stressful drive

The Hellesylt-Geiranger ferry is a tourist centric one. It plays pre-recorded stories as the ship navigates through the Geirangerfjord. And also a bit more expensive too.

Seven Sisters Waterfall

The rock giants rise next to the water

Watching the sunset at 10:30pm from our cabin. Successful day.
